i have a question and i can't remember if i already asked this here or not so i'm gonna ask again.


my brother's xbox 360 stopped reading the games one day. xbox claims if he sends it in they will repair it for 100 bucks. he ended up getting a new one for his birthday, but we still have the old one. he thinks i should send it in, pay the 100 bucks to get it fixed and then keep it for myself since i want one but i don't want one enough at the moment to pay for a new one.

has anyone here got one repaired before? do you think it's worth the trouble? or should i not mess with it becuase at the end of the day i'm still just gonna have a worn out xbox.

^I've actually gotten a repaired one and it was alright for me. All my games and accessories worked fine as well. I eventually gave it to my brother though since I got a PS3. tongue.gif

I'm really disappointed with what Microsoft had to offer at e3. There were only 4 games that really stuck out to me:

Mass Effect 2
Halo ODST
Halo Reach
Fortza 3

You would only be saving about $70. Do it if you don't want to spend that extra 70 dollars.

Do any one plan on getting Project Natal, when it comes out. I want it, I thing that it look really cool, but I just want to see what others are thinking.

Yes, definitely!

Ok, so here's my guesstimate on the future of the Xbox 360. Two things have lead me to this conclusion: Microsoft announcing Natal will be bundled with the Xbox 360 and Microsoft announcing this year that the 360 is only half way through its life cycle. I believe that Microsoft is going to release an updated version of the lovely white box, much like Sony did with the PS2. Think of it as a 360 Slim, if you will. It will be smaller, have better hardware (things like a disk tray similar to the PS3s, built in WiFi adapter, bigger hard drive, etc.) and be packed with Natal either integrated directly into the Xbox 360 itself, or separate. I've heard rumors that the stand alone Natal camera we're seeing now is for people who want to keep their current boxes, but the new "360 Slim" will have it built right in.

This would not only help extend the Xbox 360's life span, but it would sell lots of units. If my calculations are correct, you'll be seeing my current Xbox on EBay 'cause I'll be getting a 360 Slim. thumbsup.gif

What do you guys think?

yea, once the natal is out, Microsoft will be putting natal with the 360's that are in the factory as a bundle for no extra cost. Although the people that have the 360 already, will have to pay a price to get their hands on it.

..360 slim? wtf? please microsoft! dont make a Slim version!! its already slim enough!
